Welcome to Nicholas Mueller's Personal Page
Ready to run!
The whole gang!
I am changing the course of cancer!
What is this all about?
In honor and celebration of my mother and grandmother, who have both battled and defeated breast and skin cancer more than once, I have decided to join the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation team. As part of the team, I will raise money for the ACS while training for the 2013 New York City Marathon. If you're not familiar with the marathon distance, that's 26.2 miles. NYC will be my 2nd marathon, and by far the most meaningful and purposeful race I have ever run.
Why is this cause personal to me?
I grew up with an acute awareness of cancer. As a small child, I remember staring at the wound on my mother's back where doctors had operated. I remember all the battery of tests and operations that my mother and grandmother went through, and how drained they looked when they returned. However, what I remember the most is how amazingly positive they stayed throughout the entire process. My mother especially has always been an inspiring beacon of positive thinking. She has shown more determination (pardon the pun) battling cancer than I could hope to display by running 100 marathons.
Why support me and the American Cancer Society?
I run to celebrate their victories over cancer, and I don't even want to imagine a world without them. Unfortunately, that is not a statement that can be made by countless others whose loved ones were not as lucky. Any race could be a life-changing event - but my next race will be a lifesaving event. My race will help save lives from every cancer in every community. I'm hoping you'll support me in my efforts, and help me raise upwards of $4,000 to fight cancer.
It's up to us to change the course of cancer - and I believe in the work the American Cancer Society is doing to save lives. Every day, they're helping people stay well and get well, they're funding and conducting research to find cures, and they're rallying communities to join them in fighting back. More than 11 million Americans who have a history of cancer will celebrate another birthday this year. Please support me with a donation so that together, with the American Cancer Society, we can help save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
If this sounds like a worthy cause to you, (and why wouldn't it) or you have been or know someone whose life has been affected by cancer, please donate.
